Purtând subtitlul „roman”, volumul Microficţiuni cuprinde de fapt 500 de proze scurte – de o pagină fiecare – , care alcătuiesc un tablou ironic şi fără compromisuri al societăţii contemporane.


Deşi nu sunt traversate de un fir narativ comun, cele 500 de texte alcătuiesc o vastă frescă a lumii moderne, evidenţiind viciile, dar şi calitatea umană a unei societăţi în degradar

I've decided something. I will not bitch anymore about contemporary French literature. They are not happy people – satisfied is the queen positive feeling, and I won’t ask for something that I can’t get. Microfictions is the book of 200-something two pages long stories. About mostly everything, all life topics have been analyzed. I love this quote: 'I haven't had sexual life for quite some time. I prefer alcohol, it’s anonymous, mute, and it’s enough to open your mouth to achieve drunkenness, ec ...more

Plus de six mois depuis ma dernière « petite critique littéraire », c’est inadmissible ! Je me suis laissé emporter par la vague des mots, et des histoires qu’ils portent. Et quelle vague ce fut ! Une de celles qui vous remue dans tous les sens, façon machine à laver. Une de celles qui vous remue dans tous les sens, façon machine à laver. Une véritable déferlante où se sont enchainés pas moins de neuf livres, tous très différents, tous meilleurs que les autres. En voici une vue

Ce recueil de micronouvelles ou de microfictions comme annoncé par le titre à de mon point de vue plusieurs défauts. Composé de près de 1000 pages (en poche) dont chaque nouvelle n'excède pas 2 pages, nous approchons des 500 micronouvelles ce qui constitue un défaut selon moi. Ce livre m'a fait l'effet d'une soirée où une personne raconte des blagues à la chaîne. Une fois rentré chez soi, je suis généralement incapable de m'en souvenir de plus de 2 (quelqu'en soit la qualité).

Second défaut, le n

Some concept book, 500 stories, 2 pages each. It felt like reading a 21st century "les Miserables (for the epic size) meet American Psycho (for you can guess what)". But, where Hugo made us believe in the redemption of his characters, and Ellis made them so surrealistically, cynically empty of all feelings they had no humanist (?) values anymore, Jauffray has an ironic tone of voice throughout the whole book that makes you think he himself doesn't believe in what he writes, that his monsters are ...more

Plus de mille pages d'histoires de deux pages, soit environ 500 histoires très courtes et autant de fragments de vie, de personnages que l'on rencontre le temps d'un instant, comme un cliché frappant. Le ton est souvent cynique, jouant avec l'humour noir et une certaine cruauté. Il y a du morbide, du pathétique, de l'horreur même, mais très presque toujours avec humour. Beaucoup détestent : il est vrai que c'est noir et que la complaisance de Jauffret peut heurter ou agacer. Pour ma part, j'ai a ...more

Chaque texte fait une page et demie. Certains sont durs et même déplaisants. Je me suis arrêtée à la page 130 (il y en a près de 1000 !)
